POSTED BY: sinae kim | Mon Dec 4th, 2006 12:38 p.m.

Citizens of the world unite in spending their lives staring into the reflective surfaces of their mobile phones and desktop computers.Digital images which are consisted of pixel generally thought of as the smallest complete sample of an image are supposed to be a representation of the visual culture in the new era. Many contemporary artists are expressing their ideas through the medium of software. Programming language can be considered as a material with unique affordances and constraints such as oil painting, acrilyc and pastel.
I think that social context determine the value of the media, tendency itself of dispaying medium have to be thought as social message.New media changes the existence form of reality, visual environments.

I am exploring possibility of new abstract with new media. My new moving painting have different meanings from previous modern abstract painting. It has the Dynamic form which is form that changes in time. It has the element of Time. My flickering geometric forms implicit various meanings of discontinuety, dromologie ,supernatural and theology.The object become the dematerilization by the fast velocity and movement .
In the past, inherent trait of painting reveals through the recognitions and enactments of medium. we have to reconsider new medium.

In the modern painting, if dematerilization means that spirituality leading material toward becoming nothing structure, we can find new spritual sentiments in this new space.

The frame in my digital movie and print have function that it divide screen into two worlds.
For me, the digital canvas is another representation tool. Browser is not only the way it looks but also an inevitable basis of existence in the new space. If the history of fine art is against the frame of canvas, new painting will be founded on the browser, a element of being.

I am looking for an aesthetic capable of the new digital images in the postmodern period. Its fundamental category is the sublime. The significance of the sublime as an aesthetic subject of art seems to lie in its conceptual reach, or in the case of the religious sublime, in its spiritual dimension. The sublime refers to immense ideas like space, time, death, and the divine.

There exist something that cannot be represented in the dehors. When We feel the world beyond , we enter the realm of the sublime.To make visible that there is something which can be conceived and which can neither be seen nor made visible.The sublime takes place when the imagenation fail to present an object which might, if only principle, come to match a concept. we have the idea of the world, but we do not have the capacity to show an example of it. The simulacra is as far removed from ‘reality’ as it is possible to be.But this true reality exists and is there awaiting discovery by us.This would be a desire to seek permenance in the instable and forged world.

I am in the pursuit of new sublime sentiment in the new media place. The New visual culture has changed t our visual perception and cognition. Benjamin said that new media trains people’s perception through the simulation fitting the velocity of the modern times. I am exploring a new sublime now found in technology with biblical event. In my work, Eternity and transcendency in the theological event are compatible with the temporality and existence derived from the influence of electronic media .
